set/confirm for exposure compensation

3. The manual says that after adjusting the exposure control you have to set/confirm it before using, but actually you don't. What the manual describes is an extra step that no other camera I have ever owned had, but happily I learned you can ignore it and it still works.

Unfortunately, my TX1 (ZS100, TZ100) does require that second step of set/confirm and it annoys me every time I use it. I have the EC configured to the rear dial and each time I change EC I cannot continue until I do the set/confirm thing. I am glad my GX7II manual is wrong and it is not required and I wish the TX1 firmware behaved the same way.

By the way, here is my TX1 (ZS100, TZ100) review:

I bought the TX1 about a year before the GX7II and although the manual says for both that EC must have the set/confirm step I am very glad that is wrong for the GX7II, but sadly right for the TX1.
